    Good morning everyone!

    For some reason I was up at 6am even after being up for 25 hours. And I was finally able to set up my Internet. I had to reset my router.

    Im exhausted. Moving is a pain. Yesterday was extremely long. I'm on the far southwest of Missouri. Let me tell you that I-44 in missouri is officially the longest road ever!

    St Louis is not fun in any way shape or form. They closed part of the interstate for some people. Thankfully not my part, but no one was really aware so we all sat in traffic for a while as we bottle-necked into the same road. Brutal.

    Its so weird my apt is designed almost exactly like my apt in Tampa, Florida. Serious déjà vu going on.

    Wendy...you're simply the best. Thank you for sharing my journey with everyone.

    Welcome to your new home Billie. Glad you made it safely. 17 hours isn't too bad from WVA. However, if you are in SW Missouri I can relate to that drive across MO. I took that route MANY years ago when I went from Rantoul IL to Wichita Falls TX.

    Glad you made it! Hope Arthur isn't too upset by the move. Since you're in Southwest Missouri, put some Ragtime music on the old iPod, relax and enjoy. Scott Joplin composed most of his ragtime music while living in Sedalia, Missouri.

    Where'd you live when you were in Tampa. Just curious since I lived there for many years.

    Welcome home

    It was no trouble at all sharing your journey for you, it was my pleasure :)

    Hope you manage to find the things you need for your new home









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    Things have been going well so far...just wish I had my stuff. My new washer and dryer is being delivered today. I'm currently waiting for them. Hope the installation goes well and that they're up and running in no time. The delivery people are installing them.

    I just had lunch with my new supervisor and was able to check out my new office. It's fantastic. I've got windows!!!

    Tom, I lived off of hillsborough. How about you?

    Years ago, I used to live down not too far from the Palma Ceia Golf and Country club. And no, I wasn't a member.

    Years later, I lived up by the USF campus between Fletcher and Fowler.

    The years in between I either lived in St. Petersburg or in Connecticut.

    Used to date a girl who lived on Hillsborough just east of Dale Mabry maybe by about a mile. I worked downtown at that time in what was called the First Financial Center.
